BACTA has appointed a replacement to retiring head of finance, John Silverstone, in the form of experienced financial expert Robert Gibb, who joins the coin-op trade group from a career of developing and growing businesses.

BACTA CEO John White has this week confirmed the appointment of Robert Gibb to the post of Head of Finance. Gibb, who has over 30-years financial experience and is a chartered accountant, joins from Business Process Management Solutions, where he spent three years as finance director.

Commenting on the appointment, John White said: “I am delighted to welcome Robert to BACTA and to the unique industry that it represents. He will complement BACTA’s experienced secretariat and build on the strong foundations laid by his predecessor, John Silverstone.

“It is clear that we face some big challenges as an industry and it is vital that we have a robust infrastructure in place to enable us to represent and champion the interests of the BACTA membership across all divisions.

“Robert was the stand-out candidate in the interview process. He has a successful track record of working within large and complex organisations and has significant experience in all facets of finance, IT, commercial, operational and people management.

 

“This is a fantastic opportunity to work in an industry which makes major contributions to national, regional and local economies throughout the country.  I’m relishing the opportunity to contribute to the association and working with the members.”

 

“In his most recent position he made important contributions across the board, including the effective management of third party supplier relationships, the implementation of robust reporting and control systems and the development of the company’s strategic plan. I am confident that he will be a key asset to BACTA at this important time.”

Looking ahead to the challenge, Robert Gibb stated: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work in an industry which makes major contributions to national, regional and local economies throughout the country.  I’m relishing the opportunity to contribute to the association and working with the members.”

Robert will be working alongside the current head of finance, John Silverstone, who retires at the end of the year.
